Reality VT: Do I need a memorable Visiting Teacher?

Real thoughts & experiences by Real Visiting Teachers = Reality VT
When I asked a group of Sisters who their FAVORITE Visiting Teachers were & why? A couple of the responses saddened me but also inspired me.

Sandra said, “I wish I could but in all the years I have been a member I haven’t a v.t. In my home long enough to have one good story.”

Edie said, “Favorites…..the ones that come.”
Why do I feel sad for the Sisters who don’t have memorable Visiting Teachers? It’s good they are consistent, but why not memorable? 
Is …

A Visiting Teacher Supervisor Poem

A Visiting Teacher Supervisor by Peggy Moore
Your calling is from The Lord above,
Visiting Teachers spread His Love
You are their leader to show the way
It’s not easy you may want to say

These sisters you call and call again
Are busy with loved ones, family, and kin
Try not to give up and blow them away

Have patience, love, and understandin’
Realize their lives are very demanding
The Lord sent you to be their …

Flower Pot Card w/ Bookmarks

The month we have all been waiting for, General Conference Message Month! Just 2 months out of the year are my favorite and, at the same time, most difficult months out of the year. I guess I find it just a bit overwhelming to choose just 1 message which applies to each sister I Visit Teach. That’s probably why they say we need to pray about it. With over 30 talks to choose from I’m bound to find something that applies to any and all of the sisters I Visit …
